1823530 - Posting Date Not Permitted Due to Additional Valuation Postings

Symptom

You have created a customer invoice or a supplier invoice with a currency other than the default company currency.
You now want to cancel this invoice but the posting does not go through to accounting.

Instead, the cancelation document appears as unposted source document in the Source Documents view of the General Ledger workcenter, displaying the following error message: Posting date MM-DD-YYYY not permitted due to additional valuation postings. The item to be cleared was already valuated on posting date MM-DD-YYYY. Enter a posting date equal or after MM-DD-YYYY.

 

 

Reproducing the Issue

  1. In the Customer Invoicing/ Supplier Invoicing workcenter navigate to the Invoice Documents/ Invoices and Credit Memos view.
  2. Select the customer invoice you want to cancel and press Cancel/ Cancel Document.
  3. A cancelation invoice has been created but in the document flow of both documents you notice that this cancelation posting has not created a journal entry - The posting did not go through to accounting.
  4. To check the invoice you navigate to the Closing Cockpit of the General Ledger workcenter and there to the Source Documents view. By default the unposted source documents are displayed here.
  5. You find the cancelation invoice. In the Messages section the following error message is displayed: Posting date MM-DD-YYYY not permitted due to additional valuation postings. The item to be cleared was already valuated on posting date MM-DD-YYYY. Enter a posting date equal or after MM-DD-YYYY.

Cause

This error message appears as you have already executed the Foreigh Currency Remeasurement Run (FCR run) for the period in which the original customer/supplier invoice was posted.
The key date of this run is after the posting date of the original invoice.
Therefore you either have to post the invoice to a date on or after the key date of the FCR run (option A) or you need to reverse the FCR run to be able to post the cancelation on the posting date of the original invoice (option B).


 

Resolution

Option A) Post the invoice on or after the key date of the FCR run:

  1. In the General Ledger workcenter navigate to the Closing Cockpit and here to the Source Documents view. By default the unposted source documents are displayed here.
  2. Select the cancelation invoice and press Actions- View Business Transaction.
  3. In the new screen press Post to another period.
  4. In the popup window maintain an alternate date on or after the key date of the FCR run (mentioned in the error message) and maintain an alternate closing step if you wish.
  5. Press OK and post the invoice.

Option B) Reverse the FCR run and post the invoice to the posting date of the original invoice
